On Tuesday the couple finally unveiled their son’s face during a celebration to mark his 40 days on earth. The party was held at the singer’s Madale house in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

In the Muslim culture, a new mother and her baby spend 40 days in confinement to allow the woman to rest. The mother does nothing else but care for her newborn; relatives and friends come to help her.

The woman resumes her household duties and ventures outside the house on the 40th day, when the celebration is traditionally held.

The event was attended by the who-is-who in the Tanzanian entertainment industry and was covered live on TV. Celebrities present included Rayvanny, Lava Lava, Mbosso, Mama Dangote, Queen Darleen, Esma Khan and Wolpe,r among others.

Tanasha's family did not turn up for the celebration.

Naseeb is Diamond's fourth child and Tanasha's firstborn. The singer has two children with former wife Zari Hassan—Princess Tiffah and Prince Nillan. He also has a child with Tanzanian model Hamisa Mobetto—Daylan Abdul Naseeb.
